Official recognition for the backwardness of Islam (and the Quran) in India!

Islam as a religion and Muslims as a community of believers are slowly learning that their religion, their SHARIA, their scripture, the example of their prophet are out of tune with modern needs and democratic norms. In India, for instance, Muslim politicians have persuaded the Indian government to declare Muslims as a backward community, i.e. socially disadvantaged as a result of their lifestyles and beliefs.

Today (31st of August 07) the Indian Parliament passed a bill granting the same kind of rights to Muslims that have been granted to the untouchables and backward castes. Thus the Indian parliament, collectively prompted by the Muslim community of India, have recognized the backward nature of Islam! This is only the beginning. From now on, Muslims in India (numbering 170 million, equal in number to all the Arab speaking Muslims) will be looking at their Quran from a different perspective! R K Iyer
